The Ayatollahs' Democracy Summary


The Ayatollahs' Democracy: An Iranian Challenge by Hooman Majd

Iran is a country with global ambitions, an elaborate political culture, and enormous implications for world peace. How will its diversity of political positions resolve itself? Drawing on privileged access to Iranian society, Hooman Majd has spoken to ayatollahs, politicians and ordinary people to show that, despite the violence of the 2009 elections, the ideal of an Iranian republic is still alive. A personal, candid tour of the political landscape, The Ayatollahs' Democracy is a powerful dispatch from a country at a historic turning point.

The Ayatollahs' Democracy Reviews


In vividly readable style ... Majd gives us what's been missing for so long: a nuanced, in-depth portrait of a country both far more sophisticated and far less rigid than western policymakers have yet appreciated -- Lesley Hazleton, author of After the Prophet: the epic story of the Shia-Sunni split
No writer knows more about modern Iran than Hooman Majd. Nor does any other commentator write more cogently, or more beautifully -- Reza Aslan, author of No god but God and Beyond Fundamentalism
